As part of the Government's budget yesterday, construction work to turn the route into a dual-carriageway is expected to start sometime between January and March 2013.

The road is the scene of some of the worst traffic congestion in Nottinghamshire and delays are alleged to have cost businesses millions of pounds in lost time.

It's expected the construction work will be completed by late 2014 or early 2015."
